Heart-ache: Tiny terrorist gives Bush speech thumbs down at the UN; Update: Obama rips UN, Ahmadinejad

posted at 6:50 pm on September 23, 2008 by Allahpundit

A spontaneous gesture of disapproval? Hardly. ABC caught him waving at the White House press corps intermittently to get their attention. He may be a cretin, but he’s a media-savvy cretin.

Here’s the transcript of his speech. Nine pages in all, composed in his trademark turgid “Up With People” meets “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” style. Literally the first four and a half pages of this turd are devoted to abstractions about peace, love, dignity, justice, and other types of sugar and spice that he likes to lard up his speeches with to make the poison go down more smoothly. See last year’s UN speech for another example. As I said at the time, “He’s forever threading the needle between … psychopathic Islamist designs on Israel and the sort of squishy brotherhood nonsense that buys him legitimacy with the international community on which he depends.” Skim through this one to see if I wasn’t right, paying special attention to the passage at the top of page 6 about the Zionists who “have been dominating an important portion of the financial and monetary centers as well as the political decision-making centers of some European countries and the U.S. in a deceitful, complex and furtive manner.” Think I’m exaggerating with that “Protocols” analogy, eh?

Other pearls of wisdom to be found within: The genocide in Darfur is the fault of certain unnamed western powers and NATO bears sole responsibility for the war in Georgia. Oh, and Israel and the American empire are on their way to collapse, per page 7. If you still can’t get enough after all that, watch CNN tonight at 9 for his interview with useful idiot Larry King. Exit question: He’s got two days to kill before that big interfaith group hug at the Grand Hyatt on Thursday. What’s he going to do to pass the time? Hmmmm.

Update: He must be joking.

Below is a Statement from Senator Barack Obama on President Ahmadinejad’s Remarks

“I strongly condemn President Ahmadinejad’s outrageous remarks at the United Nations, and am disappointed that he had a platform to air his hateful and anti-Semitic views. The threat from Iran’s nuclear program is grave. Now is the time for Americans to unite on behalf of the strong sanctions that are needed to increase pressure on the Iranian regime.

“Once again, I call upon Senator McCain to join me in supporting a bipartisan bill to increase pressure on the Iranian regime by allowing states and private companies to divest from companies doing business in Iran. The security of our ally Israel is too important to play partisan politics, and it is deeply disappointing that Senator McCain and a few of his allies in Congress feel otherwise,” said Senator Barack Obama.

Am I hallucinating or hasn’t this tool made his own willingness to meet with either Ahmadinejad himself or the people who sent him to the UN the cornerstone of his foreign-policy approach?

When Obama makes statements like that it just rings hollow.

Yeah Barry, doesn’t he know the proper forum and audience for his hateful and anti-Semitic views is at the Hyatt, owned by one of your biggest financial backers, in a room filled with all your other backers?

The nerve of him, eh?

“Allowing”? Who says they can’t divest now?

We need to get the UN out of our Country! They are nothing but insulting no bodies. Send them to a Country in Europe.

It would be so easy for a marks man or marks woman, to take his ass out. On our soil! Obama thinks Iran is a tiny Country and is not a threat? I think Obama smoked to much weed and his brain is fried.

Why do Americans have to tolerate such genocidal maniacs on their soil? Why don’t they send UN to some other country? I think Europe will be more tahn glad to accept them.

I guess Obama doesn’t consider meeting with the president of the United States to be a ‘platform to air views’. Obama has this precisely backwards.

Iran, and any member of the UN, should have the chance to address the assembly at the UN. That’s the entire point of the UN, to let everyone have their say.

Any tin-pot leader should get time at the UN, but should they get face time with the POTUS? No, obviously not.

Just like his spiel on Americans learning Spanish, Obama has this exactly backwards.

I’m sure the Tiny Terrorist saw Obama’s *wink*wink* and ears flap.

Like his teacher the Reverend Wrong said from under the bus, politicians say what they need to say to get elected.

Were the audience all mesmerized by the Great One Amamadjihadi, like they were on his first appearance at the United Nihilists Gen Assembly? So the Obamanation now says
‘Now is the time for Americans to unite on behalf of the strong sanctions that are needed to increase pressure on the Iranian regime,’so where was he and his campaign on Monday to protest at Dag Hammerskjold Plaza? Oh, that’s right, he pulled Hillary from the protest, then had his George Soros operators manufacture a petition to get Gov Palin disinvited and then had his lawyers threaten the protest organizers with losing their tax exempt status as well. Then the organizers disinvited the remaining politicians, and the protest was riddled with anti Obama protests as well. Then Penny Pritzker invited Amamadjihadi to the Grand Hyatt as GUEST OF HONOR. Gee Barry with such a record on UNITING, it’s a wonder you haven’t won the Nobel Prize for Peace yet. Wait, that’s next year.

It is disppointing for me to read post after post calling for violence and death and little reflection on iran v west
history or facts.

You are divided politically as a nation but united in support of Israel blindly, no debate.
This double standards and hypocrisy has weakened ypu internationally.

Please get out of the u.n and get the u.n out of the u.s.Is that what you want,an international body given international powers that you have no input in? Would you leave Iraq then? Isn’t that under a u.n resolution?If you all call it powerless and irrelevant why should Iran or any other country listen or abide by it.
I can not believe you are still dragging the ‘wipe israel of the map’ spin to nuke Iran.Do you not read what the iranians want.These are the most pro west/u.s in the region.
They held candlelit vigils following 9/11.They are asking for help to change there political structures,but not through force.

Iran is a beautiful ancient civilisation oozing history and artefacts.A very dignified people that has not invaded or attacked another country,they want respect.

Finally,yet again,he didn’t say he wanted to wipe israel off the map,as any professor of farsi has informed us,even in israel.He said the zionists occupying jeruselum will vanish from the pages of history.When we wanted communism to end in ussr we were not calling for the deaths of the russian people as with nazism,it was the ideology.Apartheid in south africa? That has vanished from the pages of time,who would of thought that.

To achieve this Iran calls for a referendum of the palastinian people-democracy will set them free.I am not agreeing with what they say ,but the claims he has over and over called for the annihilation of the jews is wrong.However the U.S has called for the collective punishment and annihilation of the Iranian people,what have they done to you?

There are Jewish communities in Iran and are represented in government,’holocaust denial’,they are not saying it didn’t happen just more information.Why are they anti-sematic for wanting reserch into a historical event?
The point Iran is making that is lost on you lot,is, ok it did happen the way it has been told to us,but what has it got to do with the palastinian people,who were punished for something carried out in Europe.

I am not American or left wing or muslim i am from the group’rest of the world’ and i would be grateful if you could surprise me and not attack me.Dialogue is useful.
